    Nice article. Great to see some positive publicity in the media. But as an Old Grad, I have to point out that we were allowed to throw as many power punches as we wanted.

    Better than the NYT hatchet job a couple years ago.

    Nothing about USMA makes it into the NYT without someone higher up wanting it there. A certain faction wanted to kill plebe boxing. Thankfully, they lost that fight.

    My son learned a lot from plebe boxing and other combative training. I would not want to tangle with him, even at the same age.
